Def Leppard Guitarist Receives Good News In Cancer Fight

(hennemusic) Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma earlier this year, has posted a new update on his battle with cancer.

"For anyone who gives a toss, after doing another PET scan and all the other follow up tests, then getting a second opinion etc., I'm officially in remission from Hodgies," wrote Campbell. "That's the good news. The bad news is: I no longer have an excuse to not go to the gym."

Campbell remained update throughout his treatment, and even when he broke the news to the world. "My diagnosis was Hodgkin's Lymphoma and 6 months of chemotherapy is the prescribed treatment," he wrote in June. "I'm about 2 months in and feeling rather spiffy, all things considered. Hodgkin's has an over 80% cure rate, so by my reckoning, if you're going to have a cancer, Hodgie's is the one to have!" more on this story
